The Dragons are back on track with two wins last week, climbing the standings into fifth in the AJHL Viterra South Division.
The Dragons were in the den on Friday, October 21, to take on the Calgary Canucks, and opened the scoring within the first two minutes as Ty Daneault found the net. Calgary tied it up to end the first period at one a-piece. Ty Whitford put the Dragons up again on the powerplay, but the Canucks answered back, ending the second tied at two. The pattern repeated itself, this time with Daneault scoring his second and Calgary tying it up, forcing overtime. Just 1:48 into extra time, Noah Danielson scored his fourth of the season unassisted, winning 4-3.
On Saturday, October 22, the Dragons were in Olds to take on the Grizzlys. The Dragons were on fire in the first period firing off five straight goals. Dylan Glinski opened the scoring and was soon followed up by Vann Yuhas, just 29 seconds later. Glinski added his second goal less than two minutes later on the powerplay. Next, it was Danielson’s turn shorthanded, and then Isaiah Peters added his second of the season.
The Grizzly’s had a hole to dig out of but only mustered a single goal in the second.
Glinski finished off a hat trick 19 seconds into the third period, and Ty Whitford added one for good measure. Olds added one with 4:22 left, as the Dragons went on to a 7-2 win.
As of Monday, the Dragons are 7-5, and trailing the Okotoks Oilers by two points. This Wednesday, October 26, they are in Spruce Grove, and on Friday back home to play Brooks. On Saturday, October 29, they head to Brooks to face them again.
